Event Details

Seedy Saturday

Seedy Saturday 2020 was on February 29, 2020.

Brampton Horticultural Society would like to thank everyone for coming out and making the event a success again.

Seedy Saturday is an annual event for people interested in starting their plants from seed. The Society has a seed swap table where people can come and exchange their seeds for something that they haven’t tried growing before or seeds that they have been looking for. It’s a great place to find heritage vegetable varieties and interesting flower seeds. There are a lot of great vendors that participate every year, and the City of Brampton’s various nature-related departments are there to answer questions and provide information.

We hope you will join us in 2021 for another great event!
